"JASON & THE ARGONAUTS"

Based on Greek mythology, but with a modern twist or two.
Adapted for the stage by Xandra Nemchik.
Directed by Helene Nemchik and Xandra Nemchik.

A tale of a hero who was sent away by his mother and father to escape his evil Uncle Pelias' wrath. When he comes home 20 years later, he discovers the only way to get his kingdom back is to perform impossible tasks and retrieve the golden fleece.

Act I - The Kingdom of Iolcus / Chiron's Camp
Act II - Aeetes' Kingdom
Act III - The Kingdom of Iolcus

A big thanks to our actors, directors and producers (parents!) for the hours upon hours of hard work! Break a PODI!
